Miguel Cabrera has an Attitude Problem

New, 5 comments

According to ESPN.com, Cabrera shows up late for meetings and games and no longer shags flies. Some veterans on the team think someone should talk to the kid, to which Cabrera responds:

"[Forget] the veterans. They haven't told me anything and they better not come tell me anything, either.

I don't want to hear anything else. I want to play baseball, give what I have to give on the field of play, and win. That's all I want. ...

Everyone here is a grown man. Everyone knows what he's doing. And I'm not going to go crazy worrying about these things."

Cabrera is a very talented ballplayer, but it's actions and comments like this that make me very happy the Mets have David Wright. Wright has all the talent of Cabrera with the discipline and level-headedness that make him a much more likeable ballplayer and person.
